Miss Inez Thompson returned on the Alliance form a three months’ visit with friends and
relatives in the Willamette Valley and The Dalles.
Miss Thompson left here about the middle of December en route to Portland for treatment
of her vocal organs, having been deprived six hours, her voice was suddenly and miraculously
restored. This lasted about two weeks, during which time she visited Wm. Rich’s people at
Newberg, spending Christmas there. On the 30th of December her voice again left her almost
as suddenly as it had returned, so she went to Dr. J F Dixon, of Portland, who pronounced the
trouble paralysis of the vocal chords [print]. After five weeks’ treatment with Dr. Dixon, she
was again able to talk, and the doctor pronounced her permanently cured, stating, however,
that she would never be able to sing.
After a month’s visit with a cousin at the Dalles, Miss Inez returned to this place and it is
with much joy that her host of friends learn of her restoration and can hear her speak to them
in her own natural voice [as in print]. All are more than rejoiced that her affliction has been
removed and that she is home again to fill the vacancy so keenly felt by her absence. +
